Mardi Link’s “Bootstrapper” to launch at Brilliant Books
Bestselling Michigan author Mardi Jo Link will be launching her latest work, Bootstrapper, at Brilliant Books in Traverse City, on Saturday, June 15th at a public reception from 7 – 9pm.
Known for her work in journalism and true crime, Bootstrapper is something new for Link. This memoir is a tough look at some of the hardships involved with life in Northern Michigan, filled with Link’s good-natured humor and wit.
Link was recently featured on Channel 7&4’s Writers Minute, where she talked about her two previous books, Isadore’s Secret and When Evil Came to Good Hart. She also described her motivation for writing this new memoir.
Bootstrapper is featured in the June IndieNext list, a selection of the best new reads as determined by indie booksellers nationwide. These titles are selected by people who live and breathe books and each title selected must be nominated by a large majority.
“We’re really excited to be launching Mardi’s books here,” said store owner, Peter Makin, “Mardi is a phenomenal writer and Bootstrapper is sure to be a national bestseller. This is a rare chance to be at the launch of a book that will be a nationwide hit.”
Reviews for for Bootstrapper have been universally positive:
“A heroic-comic saga of single motherhood, pure stubbornness, and the loyalty of three young sons. And more than that, an honest account of the working poor, the people who buy day-old bread, patronize libraries and don’t need your sympathy.
Just a break now and then.”
